CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.
Massages and treatments are based on authentic natural healing methods found in traditional well-being practices shared by many Asian cultures.
CHI, The Spa, also includes a selection of treatments that showcase Arabic well-being traditions such as the Hammam, Detoxifying Arabic Coffee Scrub and Rose & Honey Body Wrap. Surrender to the intuitive touch of our skilled therapists, within the restorative luxury of CHI, The Spa, to revitalize the body and soothe the senses.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, ch'i or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that ch'i must flow freely within the body. When ch'i is blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow.
Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages. Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
